Once again, the Aadmi Party (AAP) faced rebellion today when an office bearer alleged "high command culture", pre-decided candidates and deviation from the party's core issue of corruption.

According to a Zee News report, Ashwini Upadhyay, AAP's legal cell convenor, called Arvind Kejriwal a 'liar' and a 'CIA agent'.

The founder member of AAP, Aswini blocked Kejriwal's way outside his residence when the latter was heading for his rally in Mathura today, while protesting over not getting a ticket for 2014 General Elections.

Upadhyay alleged candidates on 64 of the 70 seats declared ahead of the Lok Sabha polls were fixed.

While engaging in a verbal scuffle with Kejriwal, Ashwini said that the AAP chief is diverting from the real issues he had raised initially. “This man is a liar. He tells lies,” said Ashwini.

Besides this, he also said that corruption, communalism, high command culture, dynastic rule and caste-based politics were main issues of AAP, but now compromises were being regarding these issues.

Upadhyay had earlier questioned AAP's policy on entertaining people funded by American organisations like the Ford Foundation by including them in the various committees to formulate policies.
